Can not install some of the expansions. [SOLVED]

Post by Alexa_H on Fri 08 Feb 2013, 19:27

Hello. I am new here and I hope someone can help me with the installation ...
Because of an error, I had to unistall the game and install it again. I have downloaded the base game and all of the expansions again, this time from this site. I started with the base game and followed the steps as described on "MUST READ How to install The Sims 3 correctly". I have skiped the crack but had to apply the manual patch in order to properly finish the base game installation. Further, I managed to successfully install world adventures as well as high end loft stuff. But when I wanted to install ambitions, I get this message:

"This product requires an installed copy of The Sims 3. Please install The Sims 3 before installing this product."

Can someone please help me? I have already tried to unistall everything and install it again but it did not help. I also get the same message if trying to install pets, seasons or master suite. Other packs I did not try to install.

Thank you for your help in advance!

Hello,

Welcome to the Forum!
You downloaded and installed the base game via Games4theworld? Or did you use one of these "complete" packages?

Hi,
I downloaded the base game and all expansions separately via Games4theworld.

Hello,

Does this folder exist on your PC: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin ?
Also, did you move, remove or rename any of the installed files/folders?

Hi,

I have a separated partition for games and it was working fine with Sims, Sims 2 and Sims 3 till now. And no, I have not moved or renamed any files or folders.

So, I have following:
- F:\The Sims 3\Game\Bin
- C:\Program files\Electronic Arts\EADM

Should I try to install it on C?

Hello,

Did you change the installation location during the installation or did you manually move the files afterwards?
Also, do you get an error when you try to start the game's Launcher now?

Hi,

I changed the location while installing the game. By default partition C is given, but I chage it to F. (I did not move any files or folder after installing.)
I did not try to run the game yet. I will use the crack, try it and I will inform you about it shortly.

//EDIT


Hi,

I applied the crack and tried to start the game via launcher
- nothing happened. The launcher opens normally but when starting the
game, the launcher closes without any error messages and the game does
not start. I have tried several times (with base game, world adventures
and high end) with no difference.
But, if I leave the launcher opened for a few minutes without any actions, this message occurres:
http://i74.servimg.com/u/f74/18/10/45/94/error32.jpg

This is strange ... It is not my first installation and I have never encountered such problems.

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
The error you get is caused by a scripting problem on the page that is being loaded in the Launcher, nothing to worry about.
As for your problem, please re-do step 2-4 to fix that problem: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
Re-download the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix!

Good luck!

Hi,

Thank you. Will try as you advised.

//EDIT

Hi again,

After my last post, I decided to unistall everything
and install it yet again. This time I had no problems at all (although I
used the same download and installed it the same way as in any previous
attempts), I can open the launcher normally and even start the game.
Although
everything seems to work fine, I still get the same script error
message (already mentioned in my previous post) and this one:

What can I do about it?

The game has been updated in the meantime, so have our instructions: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
Re-do those instructions and remember to RE-DOWNLOAD both the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix. Good luck and please let us know the result!

Hi,

Done as instructed and now it works fine - the game loads without the "unofficial modification" message, the game can actually be played normally more than 20 min and I can access the buy/build mode again. Thank you very much! Smile
